Ratchet's desperate search for Clank resumes with a bang as he finds himself engulfed in ship-board combat -- only to be cast adrift and washed up on the shores of a remote island on the planet Merdegraw. Our Lombax hero must overcome life-threatening challenges, encounter hostile new alien races and even form an allegiance with dreaded Captain Slag’s first mate, Rusty Pete. All in the pursuit of clues that lead Ratchet to the treasure of Captain Angstrom Darkwater, Slag's former commander and keeper of the only known link to the mysterious Zoni: the Fulcrum Star. Push, pull, and manipulate objects as you solve various puzzles using Ratchet's new wrench. New Light/Dark gameplay: Illuminate dark areas and use your wits to survive encounters with enemies that live in the dark. New Pirate Puzzles: Mix brew, manipulate shadows, and play tunes to find hidden booty. [SCEA] Expand

    It has a few hours of enjoyment and despite maybe being a little too short; you will want to go back over and over again.

    Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty is a wonderfully enjoyable bite-sized helping of game goodness that will keep fans ticking over until the full release next year.
  3. Ratchet and Clank fans should really find themselves loving everything about Quest For Booty. At $15, this is one of the best bang-for-your-buck deals out there for all gamers.
  4. Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty is fresh and funny entertainment that the whole family can enjoy this summer. Insomniac Games achieved an action spectacle full of acrobatic jumps and simple puzzle solving. Three hours of adventures at its best for an adequate price.
  5. A solid, well written game that's bit on the production values. It's a little on the short side but it does serve as a nice warm up for the next game.
  6. If you haven't played a Ratchet and Clank game before, this is certainly a good place to start since it has a very short play time.
  7. Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty is a vanilla ice cream cone. It's snack-sized, relatively cheap, and is nice on a lazy summer day. But at some point, you'll probably wish it was part of a float or a banana split.

The humor, the great characters, the voice acting and of course, the fun! It's a short adventure, but it's great if you just want some classic R&C action without having to commit to a 20 hour quest. Very highly recommended, to fans and newcomers alike. Expand

Thats what a lot of people have a problem with; its too short. Its not an entire R&C game, its simply a small side-tale about the Zoni and Clank's mysterious disappearance. Thats it. Any fan of the R&C games, or even Tools of Destruction alone, will like this game. Just dont sit down expecting an adventure thats gonna last forever cause if you know what you're in for then there is absolutely nothing wrong with Quest for Booty. Expand

    Sometimes its nice to play threw a simple but well crafted game. The idea of releasing a demi ratchet and clank game at first scared me offSometimes its nice to play threw a simple but well crafted game. The idea of releasing a demi ratchet and clank game at first scared me off however after experiencing Quest for Booty there is little doubt that this was an excellent instalment in the games franchise.
    Short but sweet, Quest for Booty is a step back from the grandness of a normal Ratchet and Clank game, yet retains all of the bolt juicy joy that the games are so famous for. Over a short campaign you will re-join Ratchet, now alone after the mysterious Zoni abduct Clank in the conclusion of Tools of Destruction. As well as picking up on the story, the game also carries on a lot of the previous games mechanics, graphics and general feel. This is by no means a new Ratchet and Clank experience but a 1.2 version of the previous game. This is all right as the style and story of the game is different enough, to make sure it in now way feels a drag. There are however a few positive changes mainly involving Ratchet who now has an upgraded wrench and weapons. Not having clank is a major system shock at first however you quickly make do as your plunder into your pirate filled adventure.
    Oh yes I forgot, this game is Ratchet Vs Ghost Pirates! Surely that IP is enough to get you to out to the shops to pick up such a ridiculous yet entertaining combo of characters.
    There’s little more that needs to be said about this game, in no way is it some kind of major leap forward for the franchise but it doesn’t want to be and neither does it try. Insomniac have delivered a solid instalment, which keeps the thirst for Lombax fuelled adventure parched long enough to get to the next full on Ratchet AND Clank game.

    Wow this game was short. i expected a lot more out of Insomniac for this series. The game looks great and is always enjoyable, but the Wow this game was short. i expected a lot more out of Insomniac for this series. The game looks great and is always enjoyable, but the puzzles were too simple and the diversity (even for a Ratchet and Clank game) was minimal. Maybe $10! Expand

The game is so short and similar to it's predecessor that it unfortunately feels like expendable in terms of the series. Expand

The game is fun; however, there is little to no replay value and the game's length doesn't help that either. Expand

    Without question the worst-ever installment of the series. Beyond the astonishing brevity of the game, large sections of the game are playedWithout question the worst-ever installment of the series. Beyond the astonishing brevity of the game, large sections of the game are played almost completely in the dark, where you can't see anything at all.

    The story is pointless, the weapons are utterly boilerplate for a Ratchet game (and almost completely generic even for any other game), it has almost no humor or charm, and again, the object manipulation and "light/dark" gameplay is so tedious and awful, it ruins the game. The last level prior to the final battle is one of the worst levels I've ever seen, in more than 25 years of gaming.

    It's awful. Just awful, from top to bottom. I loved the first five games, but this one has no redeeming value at all. Between this, and the equally awful Resistance 2, I'm rapidly losing faith in Insomniac. I really don't want to - I loved Ratchet, and I really hope that a Crack in Time just pretends this pile of garbage never existed at all.
